- 11/21/14: Alumni Watch -- Two former GHSWPA student-athletes were a part of the team that recently won
2014 National Collegiate Club Championship, played in Kearns, Utah. Sam Beckwith from St. Pius X (SPX) and Jesse Frazier from
Collins Hill (Eagle) are members of the Lindenwood University water polo club, which defeated the San Diego State University
water polo club
by a score of 13 - 8 to secure the national championship.
During the regular season, Sam and Jesse played for the Lindenwood B team, which finished second to their A team in
regional championship. Their coach included them in the squad he took to Utah to contest the national championship.
During the 2014 season, the Lindenwood team was lead by a core of players from Spain who carried the team to victory.
Practicing with this core of players has helped both Jesse and Sam take their water polo skills to the next level.
Congratulations to Sam and Jesse on their championship!
Also, John David Strickland from Norcorss (Blue Devil) played for the Duke water polo club in 2014. Duke qualified for
collegiate club nationals as the
Atlantic Regional Champion, finishing
tied for 13th.
